Writing a paper? Working on a literature review? Citing research in a funding proposal? Use the SSRC Citation Assistance Tool to compile citations.

  • Conduct a search and filter parameters as desired.
  • "Check" the box next to the resources for which you would like a citation.
  • Select "Download Selected Citation" at the top of the Library Search Page.

    The spatial mismatch hypothesis of Kain explains urban poverty with the inability of the poor to reach fast-growing job opportunities in the suburbs, the so called reverse commuting. Public transport provision might be an effective tool to alleviate spatial mismatch, especially if it provides access to suburbs that were formerly only reachable by car. I propose to study the effect of light rail extension in the city of Dallas on the poor using both Census and geocoded individual-level data. (author abstract)

    Despite theory claiming that transit provides mobility to the lowest-income members of society, empirical evidence for poverty as a determinant for transit ridership is lacking. Most studies of transit ridership encounter two hurdles. Either they simply try to estimate a demand function, relying on individual perceptions of transit utility, without a response variable that accurately reflects demand, or they miss several important explanatory variables for demand itself. This research proposes a novel and statistically robust multivariate regression model to estimate ridership as the intersection of supply and demand, rather than explaining solely a demand curve. It also adds several explanatory variables to existing models of ridership estimation. (author abstract)
